Credibility of news reports

A news agency report claims:

"AIADMK MPs distribute sweets: AIADMK MPS in Parliament are distributing sweets after Jaya's acquittal. In Chennai, celebrations outside Jayalalithaa's residence, supporters dance and burst crackers. Celebrations also inside Courtroom 14 after charges against Jayalalithaa are dropped. The court has also acquitted co-accused, N Sasikalaa, J Elavarasi and V N Sudhagaran.
: Experts and political commentators say that there is no doubt that J Jayalalithaa will return as the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, reports The only question is when she will takeover. Today and tomorrow are Ashtami and Navami, both auspicious days, which she may want to take advantage of."

This probably is the first time that one comes across ashtami and navami as auspicious days. So much for the research of news agencies.
